Trackback and news media: part 2

The November issue of MIT’s Technlogy Review has an article extolling the potential benefits of backlinking technology to all types of online publishing. In The Web’s missing links(sub required), the author David Gallagher says that backlinks “make it easy to follow a path through the Web’s marketplace of ideas,” turning “static Web pages into active hubs of related information.”

Echoing our sentiments, Peter Merholz is quoted as saying “It would be nifty if the newspapers did this, so people could get a sense of the discussion going on around certain topics.”

Should be exciting to watch this technology evolve.
